Sports Medicine

When an injury forces you to the sidelines, sports medicine can get you back in the game

The musculoskeletal system makes possible not only your participation in sports and pastimes but also basic everyday movements like bending and lifting. So whether you’re a weekend warrior or a competitive athlete, a sports-related injury can affect your daily life, not just your athletic performance.

Our sports medicine practitioners at United Regional Physician Group draw from their expertise and the latest medical advances to help competitive and recreational athletes alike to prevent injuries, overcome injuries and prevent re-injury. We use a team approach with orthopedic specialists, athletic trainers and physical therapists to provide treatment aimed at getting athletes back to their sport safely and quickly. We also involve coaches and parents of younger athletes in treatment programs and post-injury follow-up.
